Love the taste of potato salad, but not the carby spuds?



(Mock Potato Salad)

This gorgeous salad recipe is from my friend Amy Michelle (thanks, doll…smooch!).  I LOVED IT, so much that I have to include it here.

It’s got the same ingredients as a regular spud salad, only cauliflower subbed for the potatoes.  Which means you could take YOUR favorite recipe and do the same thing!

It’s definitely CAULIFLOWER!  No one will ever mistake it for potatoes…but I bet they love it all the same.



1 head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into bite-size florets

3/4 cup lite mayonnaise

1/2-1 tablespoon mustard

1 teaspoon salt

Pinch garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon dill weed

Ground black pepper to taste

1/2-1 tablespoon Splenda

3 hard boiled eggs, chopped

1/4 cup onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup frozen green peas, thawed

3 slices crisply cooked turkey bacon, crumbled

Place cauliflower in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until just fork tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and cool slightly.

In a large bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, garlic powdersalt, Splenda and pepper. Add the cauliflower, eggs, onion, peas, and bacon to the dressing and stir until well coated. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours. The longer the cauliflower salad chills, the better the flavor.

  1. looks great. I’ve also made pasta sauces out of cauliflower that was excellent and made the pasta seem like it had an creamy alfredo sauce.

    Again, cauliflower, yum! You MUST start alerting me when you make things I might like. Which is everything. Dad can’t possibly eat everything himself. We’re willing to help, you know.
